Question
Posted : November 5, 2006
Around 10 years ago my right ear was blocked and had to be syringed. Since then whenever I fly, my right ear takes a few days to unblock but this has reduced to a few hours in the last year. I have been diving twice and both times, I have experienced pain in my right ear. The instructor on my most recent dive commented that I wasn't equalising correctly but in that case why do I not have any pain in my left ear? My doctor is hopeless and looks at me like I'm wasting his time when I tell him I have pain in my right ear when diving. I'm eager to gain diving qualifications but I don't want to waste money if I have permanent ear problems.
please respond to my new email dawnwalker78@hotmail.co.uk I have been unable to locate a profile on this site that will allow me to change my email address.
